It’s embedded on the channel by Discovery, there isn’t a way

Discovery+ is a separate streaming service by Discovery Networks. It's like CBS All Access and will probably be separate from your cable subscription.

This will be separate as with Netflix, Hulu etc.

We’ll also see Paramount Plus debut in ‘21 as well.

Regular cable is quickly falling.

Paramount plus is just going to be a new name for CBS All Access.

If we don't purchase Discovery Plus will we not be able to see any of those included channels that we see right now?

It’s a separate streaming service that has nothing to do with Comcast and doesn’t affect your service. It’s a one stop for all the Discovery owned channels

More than a name change. Other content will be integrated as well.

Nothing has been announced regarding adding it, very rarely is an app released on the X1 platform the same day it starts. Peacock is the obvious exception.

Isn't Discovery Plus the channels we already pay for in our cable packages?

Yes but there will be original shows there as well.

Plus option for no commercials.

Expect it in mid 21 at best.

Will Xfinity/Comcast be removing the channels covered under Discovery+ from their cable channel line up like they removed TCM?

TCM was not removed. It was just moved to Sports/Entertainment, and has nothing to do with streaming. Since it has no ads, Comcast could not make a deal to add their own ads to make money.

I doubt if there will be any change to the linear Discovery channels any time soon. Discovery+ is just like HBO Max and similar that just squash all the programs into one streaming subscription. I do notice that in some of their graphics showing the channels it will carry, SCIENCE is not one of them.
